them." now he's suing one of those women -- and three others -- who have spoken out against him for defamation. banas -- who has not been charged with any crime related to these allegations -- says they are false, vicious rumors. 'why file the defamation lawsuit?' 'for me, its simple, i need to get the truth out there."jacob banas is the manager and a bartender at the august weber haus in cedarburg -- a father. 'its kind of a cute story, my mom had a cheese store in here for about 25 years."he says for years he has wanted to scream the truth from the mountaintops -- he did not drug or rape any women. "i mean, its a small town. people talk. media reports first circulated in 2014 saying banas was under investigation for third degree sexual assault and drugging women.he was never charged. since then, he says,
marriage ended in divorce. 'did you use this business to get women in the door? so that you could take advantage of them? 'no, i mean, not for any- did people come in and we have some drinks and, but not in any, i never drugged anybody. i have never possessed anything like that and never harmed anybody in any way.'there are women, though, who tell a very differ the extent of it, but i do know that he took advantage of me.' 'i think that i was drugged by him.' 'i am positive that we were drugged.'

some saying they feel like they were sexually assaulted. 'i was confused, and ashamed, and scared i guess is the best way to put it. you blamed yourself? yeah. and i thought i made the mistake.' 'it was kind of all, maybe it happened, maybe it didnt. i started to doubt myself." 'its humiliating. and, after the fact i didnt breathes deeps i didnt go to the police. i didnt tell anybody. i just felt like, well you know what i was there. i put myself in that position. um, you know, its part my fault."they all tell similar stories. they were at the august weber house. banas made them drinks. of what happened next. banas says none of it is true. 12:16:36meg 'its very hard to believe that all of these women would come forward with a made-up story.' banas 'i agree, i think some of it was to cover some of their own lies. whether it be you know their husbands or boyfriends or how much they drank, but i think- there were never any charges. i think that speaks for itself. while i understand the
truly did something wrong there would have been some charges.' meg 'how can all of these people be saying kind of the same thing? are they all wrong?' banas 'they are, but i think it is important to remember that only one person claims anything physical ever happened- none of these other- as far as i am aware- anybody else has ever said - anything sexual women we interviewed say they believe they were sexually assaulted. "my belt was on the floor, my fly was down on my jeans, i dont go to bed like that.'one of them says banas took photos of her. she was approached by two strangers at a bar who said they had seen a naked photo of
and they said well, you were kinda passed out. you were naked. you were on a bed. ' 'i was speechless.' those allegations never led to charges. "just because there's no evidence, does that mean it didn't happen?" "in this case, yes." but in 2004 banas did plead no contest to a bizarre case with similar facts. a woman paid him $1,800 after he claimed he had a sex with him. 'did you do those things that are alleged? did you exploit a woman and say, hey, i have nude photos of you and i am going to make these public if you dont pay me? looking off camera 'can i answer that? banas' lawyer said he wanted to talk to his client before he answered -- so they went outside to talk and then came back. 'in that case i pleaded no
past it and to be honest i dont feel like it has anything to do with allegations that were made."when we asked him whether it shows a pattern of conduct... "i think it shows that i was desperate for money to gamble with. i dont think it shows that i drugged anybody. i think it shows i took advantage of a reports, locals have been very vocal.

more than 600 signatures...people say the restaurant should be open all the time, not just when unsuspecting tourists are in town. 'theres an expectation that youre gonna be open for business. and open for business isnt 3 or 4 times a year.' 'visitors to cedarburg, and cedarburg relies on visitors and tourism, dont know about this situation. and they are just sitting ducks.' "to say i am a danger to tourists during a festival or pouring them a beer or a glass of wine to me is ridiculous. it is not anything i would ever do." banas is now suing some of the people who have spoken out against him for defamation. he's even suing one person over a yelp review. 'social media is what it is- you just cant say things without them being true because they really do affect peoples lives."we asked him if he had plans to sue anyone else -- pointing out the choice words used by many
restaurant's liquor license. "do you plan to take legal action against all of those commenters as well?' 'i dont know about all. i think we will take it wherever the evidence leads.that's one of the reasons many of these women say they wanted to speak out anonymously. 'im scared of jacob banas.'they are scared they will be sued. but they say they are more scared he could take advantage of even more women. 'if we all start coming together then these stories beco is a problem." 'something happened." 'the truth is the truth. and, if he thinks that this is just gunna go away, i mean, its not. its not gunna go away.' "i think one small lie has turned into small town gossip and it has grown into this now where there is media coverage and police involved simply because they didnt want to be honest about their actions.'12:14:51 'all of these people, you think,
cedarburg police say this is an ongoing investigation and they would encourage anyone to come forward and share their story -- even if it happened a long time ago. the petition to take away the restaurant's liquor license is expected to be presented to the common council as soon as next week. these rumors have been around for years now...why haven't police either bro well they did search his restaurant and his apartment. police took computers and cameras and cell phones into evidence. and they found diphenhydramine and lidocaine -- both of which have been used before in date rape cases. but still no charges. banas says the lidocaine belonged to someone else and the diphenhyrdramine was for personal

dan lipski practices extreme caution. no one knows more than a battallion chief not to take any little thing for granted. lipski-a fourth generation milwaukee firefighter--learned that the hard way last april 15th. his pounding headache--which sent him home from the fire house that day--had nothing to do with taxes-- after dinner that night he struggled away leftovers from dinner. a couple of seconds later i knocked over a lamp..and started to think something wasn't quite right and i called my brother.... initially, doctors suspected a brain tumor and he was transferred to aurora st luke's on milwaukee's southside. dr juanita celix quickly discovered the problem. "they were absesses small collections of bacteris that walled themselves off"
little. but the swelling in dan's brain was painful--and potentionally lethal. "he had a few in critical areas so they were on the right side of the brain..and they control motor function for the opposide side of the body. "pretty important things to have if you're a firefighter" the swelling left dan essentially paralyzed. " when i was at my worst...i couldn't wiggle my fingers...i couldn't wiggle my toes..i cou dr celix says it was time for plan b--very delicate brain surgery to drain each absess " we need to go on..we need to try something or this could be permanent" the scars of mulitple-surgeries tell only part of the story of a rough spring--recovery would be long...and
a man who would be out ther fighting fires..he was very down because he couldn't do what he was made to do...and was in incredible amounts of pain" "after weeks of not being able to achieve anything..to see the joy in their eyes when you can wiffle a finger or toe...i'm a faily cynical person by nature and i thought..we're really celebrating the little stuff here aren't we...i'd really like to be able to brush my own teeth but i can't even lift my hands up..but it was that every day encouragement" for days on end, his wife never left his side. when she wasn't there, a physical therapist was. he was very down and very sick..and we had to take care of him and be his cheerleader..and make sure he didn't give up on himself. he never did. thursday, he'll celebrate thanksgiving with family--but first wanted to gather the medical team that made it possible. "there's no amount of gratitude i can give or show to the people whove touche me in such an amaxing way..i'll forever in my life be paying
they are the hero's heroes---but ironically, the best thank you he could give wasn't necessarily coming back--it was being able to leave on his own. that's why we do our job..my husband is a firefigher we had that little family bond where it rouched my heart even more..i was blessed to be a part of it's amazing..i dont need a thank you for that..this is just amazing to see this" goodbyes over, it was back to the job he loves--a job he wondered if he'd ever be able to do again. his brush with death has made him more grateful, humbled, wiser. it has changed him. " don't wait for that do or die moment to change you..don't let
much of the bounty you possess already..we can't wish for the next greatest thing to reflect back on what we have..to say thank you when it's appropriate..which is all the time. one thing that struck dan so much about saying thank you to the medical staff was their response. everyone said they were "just doing their job"--something dan said he's said countless times to people he's helped as line--gratitude is contagious--tell the people around you what they mean to you. the dodge county sheriff's office identifies the man found dead in a cabin near reeseville yesterday. 46-year-old james greevers junior from milwaukee was found dead.
